This stands as an example of societal "trajectory" that should be worthy of sober reflection by all. 

CNN reporter warns of violence from 'both sides' after armed man arrested outside Justice Kavanaugh's home

Suspect Nicholas John Roske has since been charged with the attempted murder of Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Entirely self inflicted IMO, didn't have to happen... all people needed to do to avoid it was absolutely nothing.

The stark horror of conducting an abortion during the course of a live birth should be required viewing for everyone with extreme positions on the subject, or who would dismiss the notion that trajectory matters. It invites the very sort of pushback we see from those previously willing (even grudgingly so) to compromise for benefit of all and the ability to live in peace within the boundaries of civilized behaviour.

Newton's third applies here.... for every extreme position there is an equal and opposite extreme position. If you have a good thing, and all you have to do to maintain that good thing is nothing, why wouldn't you just DO NOTHING? 

I'm guessing the motivation for it comes from the notion that we don't actually have "a good thing" in western society. That's an easy fix though... you just need to get out more.

I think it's safe to say that the amount of lasting harm that can be inflicted in a short period of time has even surprised people who's job it is to think about such things and address vulnerabilities.

IMO, the defund movement can be fixed (meaning returned to pre-madness levels) in 5-7 years. The border debacle is different, one single year of buffoonery can take an entire generation to resolve... and that's after you start doing it right. 

The MBA crew don't seem to understand the inertia inherent in re-manning the short sighted depletion of professions that are highly experience dependant. They also (clearly) fail to comprehend the manpower vampire that surveillance and monitoring operations are by nature. 

Experience is gained over time and the resolve to avoid an evil is rarely formed until after the evil has occurred. 

By way of example, none of the experienced pilots that I know (currently driving trucks / heavy equipment) would even consider a return to the industry at this point. For the first time, I'm now prepared to agree that a pilot shortage actually exists. Previously, there was simply a shortage of experienced (Red Seal) pilots willing to relocate and work for an apprentice  salary.

LOL, try it with other Red Seal trades, I'm fond of picking on welders... so, try that approach with them, see how it works out for ya.

Supreme Court limits Biden's power to cut emissions

By Esme Stallard

The US Environmental Protection Agency has lost some of its power to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The landmark ruling by the US Supreme Court represents a major setback to President Joe Biden's climate plans.

His measures to address carbon dioxide pollution - and cut emissions in half by 2030 - will now be limited.

The case against the EPA was bought by West Virginia on behalf of 18 other mostly Republican-led states and some of the nation's largest coal companies.

They were challenging whether the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the power to regulate planet-warming emissions for state-wide power sectors or just individual power plants.

These 19 states were worried their power sectors would be regulated and made to move away from using coal.

In a 6-3 ruling, the court sided with the conservative states and fossil-fuel companies, agreeing that Congress had not "intended to delegate... decision[s] of such economic and political significance".

The court hasn't completely prevented the EPA from making these regulations in the future - but says that Congress would have to clearly say it authorises this power. And Congress has previously rejected the EPA's proposed carbon limiting programmes.

Environmental campaigners will be deeply concerned by the outcome as historically the 19 states have made little progress on reducing their emissions - which is necessary to limit climate change.

The states made up 44% of the US emissions in 2018, and since 2000 have only achieved a 7% reduction in their emissions on average.

It means President Biden is now relying on a change of policy from these states or a change from Congress - otherwise the US is unlikely to achieve its climate targets.

This is a significant loss for the president who entered office on a pledge to ramp up US efforts on the environment and climate.

 

On his first day in office he re-entered the country into the Paris Agreement - the first legally binding universal agreement on climate change targets - and committed the country to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 52% by 2030 against 2005 levels.

Crazy always comes with a price tag

Sometimes all you have to do is nothing.

Sometimes, it turns out that the status quo was really what you wanted all along.

The liberal push for late term and partial birth abortions was so repellant to most people that of course there would be equal and opposite pushback. WDYTWGTH?

In terms of the extent of pushback, I can only speak for myself. Now that I know where they want to go with this, all discussion is over, no more negotiations, you need a majority now and that's about as likely as getting any sympathy from me.

Now, wouldn't doing nothing have been a better plan? Wouldn't not being bat s%$# crazy have worked out better for you?

There’s a hole in this country 
Where it’s heart used to be.

Old Glory’s divided on fire in the street.

Stick your progress where the sun don’t shine 
Keep your big mess away from me and mine 
If you leave us alone we’d all be just fine.

Biden admin quietly approves construction of U.S.-Mexico border wall near Yuma, Arizona

Joe Biden previously admonished Donald Trump over the wall and his immigration policies

 

Not another foot."

Those were the words Joe Biden used as a mantra throughout his 2020 presidential campaign regarding the construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall. But on Thursday, the Biden administration approved a plan to complete a section of the border wall near Yuma, Arizona. 

The plan includes filling four major gaps in the wall that continue to allow the Yuma area to be one of the busiest corridors for illegal immigration crossings. 
 

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas authorized the new plan, which was started by the Trump administration, in an effort to "deploy modern, effective border measures" and improve "safety and security along the Southwest Border," the agency said.

It’s Game Over for the Fed—Expect a Monetary “Rug Pull” Soon…

You often hear the media, politicians, and financial analysts casually toss around the word “trillion” without appreciating what it means.

A trillion is a massive, almost unfathomable number.

The human brain has trouble understanding something so huge. So let me try to put it into perspective.

If you earned $1 per second, it would take 11 days to make a million dollars.

If you earned $1 per second, it would take 31 and a half years to make a billion dollars.

And if you earned $1 per second, it would take 31,688 years to make a trillion dollars.

So that’s how enormous a trillion is.

When politicians carelessly spend and print money measured in the trillions, you are in dangerous territory.

And that is precisely what the Federal Reserve and the central banking system have enabled the US government to do.

From the start of the Covid hysteria until today, the Federal Reserve has printed more money than it has for the entire existence of the US.

For example, from the founding of the US, it took over 227 years to print its first $6 trillion. But in just a matter of months recently, the US government printed more than $6 trillion.

During that period, the US money supply increased by a whopping 41%.

In short, the Fed’s actions amounted to the biggest monetary explosion that has ever occurred in the US.

Initially, the Fed and its apologists in the media assured the American people its actions wouldn’t cause severe price increases. But unfortunately, it didn’t take long to prove that absurd assertion false.

As soon as rising prices became apparent, the mainstream media and Fed claimed that the inflation was only “transitory” and that there was nothing to be worried about. Then, when the inflation was obviously not “transitory,” they told us “inflation was actually a good thing.”

Of course, they were dead wrong and knew it—they were gaslighting.

The truth is that inflation is out of control, and nothing can stop it.

Even according to the government’s own crooked CPI statistics—which understates reality—inflation is breaking through 40-year highs. That means the actual situation is much worse.

No Inflation Without Representation

The US federal government’s deficit spending and debt are the most significant factors driving this money printing, resulting in drastic price increases.

The US federal government has the biggest debt in the history of the world. And it’s continuing to grow at a rapid, unstoppable pace.

It took until 1981 for the US government to rack up its first trillion in debt. After that, the second trillion only took four years. The next trillions came in increasingly shorter intervals.

Today, the US federal debt has gone parabolic and is well over $30 trillion.

If you earned $1 per second, it would take over 966,484 YEARS to pay off the US federal debt.

And that’s with the unrealistic assumption that it would stop growing.

The truth is, the debt will keep piling up unless Congress makes some politically impossible decisions to cut spending. But don’t count on that happening. In fact, they’re racing in the opposite direction now that they’ve normalized multitrillion-dollar deficits.

Below is a chart of the Congressional Budget Office’s deficit projections for the next decade. These estimates will almost certainly be too rosy, as they often are.US-Fed-Budget-300x186.png

Even by the CBO’s optimistic projections, the US government will have a cumulative deficit of over $15 trillion for the next ten years.

So, who is going to finance these incomprehensible shortfalls? The only entity capable is the Fed’s printing presses.

Allow me to simplify it in three steps.

Step #1: Congress spends trillions more than the federal government takes in from taxes.

Step #2: The Treasury issues debt to cover the difference.

Step #3: The Federal Reserve creates currency out of thin air to buy the debt.

In short, this insidious process is nothing more than legalized counterfeiting. It’s taxation without consent via currency debasement and is the true source of inflation. Mainstream media and economists perform incredible mental gymnastics to conceal and justify this fraud.

That’s how government spending, deficits, and the federal debt affect inflation.

As long as the average person doesn’t notice the rising prices, the system works well. However, once the price increases become painful enough, it creates political pressure for the Fed to combat inflation by raising interest rates.

The Fed Has a Serious Problem This Time

The amount of federal debt is so extreme that even a return of interest rates to their historical average would mean paying an interest expense that would consume more than half of tax revenues. Interest expense would eclipse Social Security and defense spending and become the largest item in the federal budget.

Further, with price increases soaring to 40-year highs, a return to the historical average interest rate will not be enough to reign in inflation—not even close. A drastic rise in interest rates is needed—perhaps to 10% or higher. If that happened, it would mean that the US government is paying more for the interest expense than it takes in from taxes.

In short, the Federal Reserve is trapped.

Raising interest rates high enough to dent inflation would bankrupt the US government.

We can see this dynamic in the below chart of the federal debt and the federal funds rate, the Federal Reserve’s primary benchmark interest rate. The higher the federal debt, the harder and more painful it becomes to raise interest rates.

Fed-is-trapped-300x184.png

In short, the US government is fast approaching the financial endgame. It needs to raise interest rates to combat out-of-control inflation… but can’t because it would cause its bankruptcy.

In other words, it’s game over.

They have no choice but to “reset” the system—that’s what governments do when they are trapped.

Think of it like this.

Imagine a spoiled child playing a board game, and rather than admit he is losing, he flips the board. This is what governments will do now that they are financially checkmated. They can’t win, even in their own rigged game, and now are left with the choice of losing power or flipping the board. Since power does not relinquish itself voluntarily, we should presume they’ll choose to flip the board.

Here’s the bottom line.

The current monetary system is on its way out. Even the central bankers running the system can see that. So they are preparing for what comes next as they attempt to “reset” the system.

I suspect it could all go down soon… and it’s not going to be pretty.

It’s going to result in an enormous wealth transfer from you to the parasitical class—politicians, central bankers, and those connected to them.

Editor’s Note: The economic trajectory is troubling. Unfortunately, there’s little any individual can practically do to change the course of these trends in motion.

The best you can and should do is to stay informed so that you can protect yourself in the best way possible, and even profit from the situation.

Unprecedented territory here so they better find something actionable or this whole thing is likely to backfire... and badly. Weaponizing the DOJ and FBI against a former president and political adversary (just prior to midterm elections), and finding nothing will leave a large  bruise if they don't.

If it's really about classified material, it's noteworthy that as president, Trump had full authority to declassify all documents / information created or obtained under his tenure. This will go badly for someone... it'll be fun to see who.

Multiple sources tell Fox News the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago is related to the materials Trump allegedly brought to his private residence after his presidency concluded. That matter was referred to the Justice Department by the National Archives and Records Administration, which said it found classified material in 15 boxes at the residence.
